"Cosmos (Outer Space)" as written by Claire Elizabeth Guy, Sergey Galoyan and Leonid Alexandrovski....
Games we don't want to play
Same winner everyday
Kill for the second best
Feel no more, feel no less

We have our minutes cut
We lose our feelings but
That's what the movies show
This is where stories go

Stars we don't want to reach
Scars we don't want to stitch
Go where we haven't been
Fly away, time machine

Cloud we will chase him out
Crowds, we will face them down
This is our secret place
Outer space, outer space

Our home forever is outer space
Black stars and endless seas, outer space
New home, new destinies, outer space
Forever we'll be in
Outer space, outer space

Ground we don't want to feel
Found what they didn't steal
Time, we were really lost
Bridges burnt, fingers crossed

We, shall we ever be free
With no guarantee
Life on another plane
Same before, same again

Go where you want to go
So no one ever knows
Only what we decide
Is it gone
Has it died

Dry every tear in my eye
You can tell me why
This is our secret place
Outer space, outer space

Our home forever is, outer space
Black stars and endless seas, outer space
New home, new destinies, outer space
Forever we'll be in
Outer Space, outer space

Outer space is where we get together
And this place we're meant to be
Stars are dancing and the time is fading
Dead forever,
You and me,
You and me

Racing stars and common moons are planets
In the cosmos, we are free
There's no atmosphere
And no obsessions
It'll always be
It'll always be

Our home forever is, outer space
Black stars and endless seas, outer space
New home, new destinies, outer space
Forever we'll be in
Outer Space, outer space

Our home forever is, outer space
Black stars and endless seas, outer space
New home, new destinies, outer space
Forever we'll be in

Outer space, outer space

    General CommentI love t.A.T.u... really, I do... but seriously girls, what the fuck were you thinking with this song? I mean, the beat is good... actually, this band has pretty faulty lyrics as far as meaning much of anything, so their catchy beats really save a lot of their songs. I like the idea of having hot lesbian space sex... that's going to be my interpretation of this song from now on.

    General CommentI feel it's leaving a place with complications and knowing how it feels to be alive without breathing

    General CommentIt seemed pretty straight forward to me, it describes how they want to escape from all the problems and conflict to a place without boundaries, a place of dreams and beauty where they can be free

    Oh, there's quite a few mistakes here too but all I know for certain is:

    Cloud we will chase him out > Clouds we will chase a mile

    General CommentThis song could easily be a sequel to "Not Gonna Get Us". In that one, they're running away, and in "Cosmos", they've already run away, and are now finally in the place where they can be free. In the song, the cosmos is the perfect refuge to run away to, it's beautiful ("stars are dancing", etc), they're "meant to be" there, it's a secret place where life is not complicated. I don't think they're necessarily "happy" there; the song seems to be more about being at peace, which is the perfect followup to "Not Gonna Get Us", where they were worried about being pursued and hunted down.

    General CommentGames we don't want to play
    Same winner everyday

    We have our minutes cut
    We lose our feelings but
    That's what the movies show
    This is where stories go

    - This makes me think of death/after life. Their minutes are cut meaning, their time ended, they died. Since they're dead they have no feelings. Movies show afterlife a lot, in a sense of heaven or whatever. All stories usually end with an afterlife of some sort for those who die.
    - What way is it that they die though? To me it seems to be talking about suicide. "Kill for the second best" is one of the reasons I get that idea, they seem to be fed up.

    Stars we don't want to reach
    Scars we don't want to stitch
    Go where we haven't been
    Fly away, time machine

    Cloud we will chase him out
    Crowds, we will face them down
    This is our secret place
    Outer space, outer space

    Our home forever is outer space
    Black stars and endless seas, outer space
    New home, new destinies, outer space
    Forever we'll be in
    Outer space, outer space

    - Going where they haven't been. And they have scars they don't wanna stitch, leaving them vulnerable yet strong (also confirming the suicide thought). The crowds they'll no longer have to deal with.
    - The word forever I always connect to something beyond our time as living. So naturally this is their forever now, Outer Space. Their new home.

    Ground we don't want to feel
    Found what they didn't steal
    Time, we were really lost
    Bridges burnt, fingers crossed

    We, shall we ever be free
    With no guarantee
    Life on another plane
    Same before, same again

    Go where you want to go
    So no one ever knows
    Only what we decide
    Is it gone
    Has it died

    Dry every tear in my eye
    You can tell me why
    This is our secret place
    Outer space, outer space

    - "They" (the crowds) could never possibly steal this afterlife, their forever, their timelessness and free place.
    - Wondering if this place will actually make them free, if it'll just be the same as before. There's really no guarantee for knowing if dying will possibly be any better.

    Our home forever is, outer space
    Black stars and endless seas, outer space
    New home, new destinies, outer space
    Forever we'll be in
    Outer Space, outer space

    Outer space is where we get together
    And this place we're meant to be
    Stars are dancing and the time is fading
    Dead forever,
    You and me,
    You and me

    Racing stars and common moons are planets
    In the cosmos, we are free
    There's no atmosphere
    And no obsessions
    It'll always be
    It'll always be

    Our home forever is, outer space...

    - Outer space is where we go when we die, "where we get together" and where we're "meant to be". They're dead forever.
    - Outer Space will always just "be". And then it continues to say "always be our home forever".


    I think alternatively it could be about high expectations from others that you actually don't want to do and follow. And simply giving a big "F You" and doing your own thing.
    And not to forget the hot lesbian space sex. Haha.

    Sorry for the long post.

    My Interpretationi think this song has a resemblance to old song in wizard of oz movie
    "somewhere over the rainbow"
    and their outer space is somewhere over the rainbow

    My InterpretationIn my opinion, in this song, they are talking about those people who don't respect lesbians. They don't wanna be around them, or be ruled by them but those people always win because they are stronger. That is why they feel like outsiders and make the cosmos (outer space) their home. Because they can be together there, alone, with no one saying bad things about them.
